The Technocracy of The Clockwork Republic is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Clockwork Android Prototype with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, vat-grown people, and national health service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 13.555 billion Clockwork Republicians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cogwheel. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Clockwork Republician economy, worth a remarkable 4,576 trillion Cogs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 337,593 Cogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Clockwork Republic's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Clockwork Republic is ranked 87th in the world and 6th in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 100.41 years.
